Buy Wakefield, the initiative committed to encouraging businesses to buy local, has officially launched along with its brand new website, which was of course designed by Statement!
Buy Wakefield is an independent business initiative to promote more business activity between companies in the Wakefield region - the overall aim is to work together to boost the local economy and create jobs.
For every £10 spent with a local SME the district benefits by at least £1.70*
All of the businesses involved in Buy Wakefield have committed to source products and services from the Wakefield region, wherever it is possible for them to do so.
The website that we have designed as part of our ongoing support for Buy Wakefield has information about what Buy Wakefield is all about and why you should get involved.
It also has a directory of all of the businesses taking part; you can sign up to get involved and add the details of your organisation to the directory so that local businesses can find you.
Visit the Buy Wakefield website to find out more and to get involved.
